Most people don’t realize this truism, but everyone is living out their present understanding of God.
For instance, if a person understands that God is their Life, and that Life is eternal, they will have no fear of death. This understanding brings a profound peace within that no matter what threat the world may lob their way, it will never touch their Life with God. They see nothing to fear, and they do not fear.
The same rule applies to supply, relationships, purpose, and health.
The more one understands that all their supply originates in God and comes without bounds, the less they fear lack. They know there is no lack with God, and when faced with a human need, they know they can go to infinite Mind and find the wisdom, insight, inspiration or idea necessary to remedy the trouble at hand. This understanding of God’s ever-present supply brings great peace and allows answers to appear quicker.
The more one understands that all true love comes from God without limit, the less they fear a lack of love in their life. They do not look to people, persons and social situations for love, where they may or may not find it. They look directly to God and find infinite Love without end.
The more one understands that their #1 purpose in life is to glorify God and let God’s presence be known and felt in everything they do, the more they will be occupied with activities that have value for them. There is no aimlessness, lack of direction, or feeling of being lost. Life is filled with worth and meaning when lived with God leading the way.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “It is our ignorance of God, the divine Principle, which produces apparent discord, and the right understanding of Him restores harmony” Science and Health, p. 390.
If there is one thing you can do to improve your life experience the most, the quickest, and the best, it is to grow in your understanding of God as infinite good. The more good you see in God, the more good you’ll see and experience every day. It’s the way it is.
